Mark Graves steps into Sesame and PMS MD role
Mark Graves will take over from Stephen Gazard as managing director of Sesame and PMS, amid a host of senior board job moves.

Graves (pictured) vacates the role of sales director, a position he held for 14 months. Before joining Sesame Bankhall Group (SBG), he ran Pink Network, part of the LSL group, as well as holding a variety of other senior position within the property services firm, spanning a decade.

Julie Sadler, formerly the company’s compliance and risk director will become managing director of Bankhall, the group’s support services arm. Sadler previously held senior roles at HBOS and The Consulting Consortium.

National operations director Stuart Davies has been appointed as group operations director. Prior to joining SBG, where he has worked for nine years, Davies was part of Zurich Insurance.

Outgoing MD Gazard leaves the firm after four years, to take up a role ‘elsewhere in the industry’.

Graves, Sadler and Davies will all report to SBG executive chairman John Cowan.

Gazard said: “SBG has a clear direction of travel, loyal clients and members, and a hugely talented team to take the business forward. I believe everyone can be truly proud of what has been delivered, particularly in terms of culture and consumer outcomes, which I am
very proud to have played my small part in. I look forward to seeing the group continue to go from strength to strength.”
